Yvonne’s experience is diverse and includes business development, corporate and cause-related partnerships, special events, direct mail, bequests, marketing and communications. Before moving into the not-for-profit sector her background was in the financial sector. Yvonne is a member of the Fundraising Institute of Australia.
She has driven and managed a range of major projects during her career including significant corporate partnerships, large scale national fundraising including Red Nose Day, health promotion events covering safe sleeping, cot-to-bed, meningitis and vision impairment.

The development of a major exhibition in conjunction with the Australian Museum showcasing St Vincent’s Hospital and the Sisters of Charity’s legacy was also a major achievement.
